Mother in vaccination fight loses primary custody of son

Share

Rebecca Bredow was last week sentenced for contempt of court almost a year after an Oakland County judge ordered her to have her nine-year-old son vaccinated.

Rebecca Bredow was jailed for seven days for refusing to vaccinate her son. The boy was temporarily placed in the custody of his father James Horne, who made sure he was vaccinated.

The specific reason that Bredow was in contempt of court is that she had consented to have her son vaccinated in court pleadings late previous year, although Vitale says that those pleadings were filed "in error", according to USA Today.

After failing to follow through with the promise, an Oakland County judge last week sentenced her to five days in prison for contempt of court.

Her ex-husband, Jason Horne, chose to abide by the court order and had their son vaccinated on Monday.

"It's been a rough few days to say the least", she added. In the intervening time, Bredow had physical custody, while Horne took charge of the boy on alternate weekends.

When asked if the experience of going to jail was worth it in the end, especially given the outcome, the mother-of-two said she still stands by her anti-vaxx stance. She immediately appealed that decision and the court found her appeal without merit. Bredow's attorney, Steven Vitale, said he would object to the change within the 21-day deadline set by the judge.

"I would rather go to jail for standing up for what I believe in than vaccinating my child", Bredow said prior to sentencing.

Oakland County Judge Karen McDonald said even though Bredow was the primary caregiver, "dad gets a say".
